So with $800 and a box of tools and limited shop equipment it began. Today 14 years later the business has came a long way from his garage at his house to a very well outfitted 6,000 sq ft facility. After years of hard work getting the repair business off the ground it seemed only natural to explore the Pre-owned sales business , which leads us to the Pre-Owned sales lot located ay 888 East Franklin Street Centerville Oh 45459.
